herbfarmacy Mallow Beauty Balm




I received herbfarmacy's Mallow Beauty Balm 15g in November's Love Lula Beauty Box.  I initially thought this was a lip balm but it's not - it is in fact a gorgeous and lush facial balm.  Scented with rosemary, rose geranium, grapefruit and ylang ylang and it contains marshmallow and mullein (an infused oil which has a natural anti-wrinkle effect).

I tend to use it at night on my face and neck as it is a rich and nourishing balm but it can also be used in the daytime in place of your moisturiser.  Use it directly on fine lines for moisturisation and repair.  You only need the tiniest amount as a little goes a long way.

I'm also a fan of herbfarmacy's Hard Working Hands Cream.

The Beauty Balm was a Winner in the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2013 - see here.

Have you used this beauty balm?

  1. Ooh I love a good balm, the only thing I hesitate about with this is I'm not a massive fan of ylang ylang, I could do with having a sniff of this before purchasing, that's the one downside to the internet, wouldn't it be great if we could share the scent with readers? :-)

    1. That would be amazing! I'm sure you'd like it as I don't think it smells really strongly of ylang ylang x
